VICTORIA: Cruise ship incident in Strait of Juan de Fuca; injuries reportedly minor


VICTORIA — A cruise ship was expected to return to its home port of Seattle today after a minor accident near the entrance to the Strait of Juan de Fuca on Saturday afternoon.

The Canadian Coast Guard reported that the Norwegian Sky took a “roll”‘ — probably from hitting a wave or something similar.

CHEK-TV of Victoria reported that two fishing boats might have cut in front of the huge liner, forcing it to turn sharply, but neither the Canadian nor U.S. coast guards could confirm that report.

The sudden movement of the Norwegian Sky knocked a few passengers off their feet, and the U.S. Coast Guard said that three or four passengers suffered minor injuries, KOMO-TV of Seattle reported Saturday night.
